NOTICE TO ALL INSTRUCTOR CANDIDATES: As of March 25th 2011 the following changes have been implemented. As an EVOC/VKF/BBP Instructor for TARS you are required to teach and turn in appropriate fees and paperwork to the state office for at least one class every two years after becoming an instructor. Any instructor that does not teach a class within this two year window will be DISMISSED as an instructor from TARS. As an instructor you are required to attend re-certification class every two years. Any instructor that misses their re-certification class may attend the next year’s class upon paying a 100 dollar reinstatement fee and pay the appropriate re-certification fee and will be required to attend and pay the appropriate fees at the next year’s re-certification class. This will get you up to date with your certification and then you will be attending in the correct manner with the date you were certified.
Classes that are taught and not processed along with appropriate fees are not considered certified classes and are not valid.
